Shane Blaney

Shane Blaney

Peer Leader Captain

Shane Blaney is a third year biology (biomedical) major. The Westside (according to Shane, “the best side”) of Cincinnati has always been home for him. He loves the culture and atmosphere of Cincinnati and could see himself living there for the rest of his life. Outside of the university, he loves to go four-wheeling and enjoys a good bonfire. This is his third year with the department of First Year Experience & LC’s and he loves every minute of it! Shane says that he looks forward to seeing where the Learning Communities program is headed and he hopes to make the best out of the experience alongside everyone involved!

She is a proud native of the Westside of Cincinnati and a second generation Bearcat. After college she plans on pursuing a dual master’s degree in Business and Sport Administration which will hopefully help her in her pursuit of her dream job which is to work for the United States Olympic Committee.

This will be her fourth year within the program and her second year as a Peer Leader Captain.

Outside of school, Rachel loves playing golf, cooking/baking, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family! Becoming involved with The Center for First Year Experience and Learning Communities has been the best decision Rachel has made while at UC.
